Machinist: I have been an Machinist for 32 years. I have a Bridgeport Mill in my shop at home. I was finding, as I was building my race car, that there were many parts that I was having difficulty finding or that needed modifying to fit my specific needs or were not to the quality I was looking for. So I set out to fabricate some of my own parts and over the years I have found people with the same problems I had locating parts so I expanded my list of items I fabricate on my mill.
MOPAR Parts Sales: I have owned, bought and traded parts for the several MOPAR vehicles I have owned in the past 30 years and I was running out of room for all of my unused parts. I then decided to start selling some of my un-utilized spare parts.
For a list of my current parts for sale please see my Parts for Sales page.History of my 1972 Cuda:
Currently I drive a 1972 Cuda that I built myself.
In 1998 I donated my Cuda to the BASF Training Center in Fife
Washington to provide students a car to practice painting
applications of their automotive Finishing Paint. (see picture to
Once back in my own shop I used my machining skills to design and manufacture a battery hold down bracket assembly, fuel and brake line clamps, fuel cell straps, trunk hinges, seat mount brackets, etc... I also designed, routed, and installed a new fuel system, and re-routed and rewired the electrical system.
